I have taught the 5E model for over 10 years now, but have struggled to find a model that allowed it to be used with the newer concept of using Science Storylines. This article changed all that. Figure 3, showing how the 5E model could be used with Linking Questions to develop a storyline with both structural and conceptual coherence was incredibly helpful. We have added an Initial Phenomena box and Initial Question box, and now have a perfect template for planning our 5E Science Storyline units. Thanks
